>> shepard: the news begins anew. the defense it set to make the case for "whitey" bulger, charged with 19 brutal murders. the trial has already seen explosive testimony. screaming matches. lots of f bombs, and now there's a chance that "whitey" bulger himself may take the stand. also, we're hearing soon we'll get a verdict in the biggest leak of classified information this country has ever seen. a controversial case that could put army private bradley manning in prison for the rest of his life. we'll break down with the judge, judge andrew napolitano, but a whole water park is shut down now an young swimmer caught a deadly parasite, one that eats away your brain. we'll talk to a doctor about what families need to know on how to prevent it. that's all ahead, unless breaking news changes everything. on "studio b." >> shepard: fir from fox at 3:00 in new york city. the mob trial of "whitey" bulger, and the case moves to the defense now. lawyers for the accused mob boss said, yes, he ran a criminal enterprise for decades. still they say he did not take part in any of the 19 murders wi
their job? >> well, i initially felt that this was probably going to be a defense case because the prosecution just didn't have the evidence. but anybody who watched this network during the trial knows that as time went on, i began to see evidence that the prosecution, they simply weren't arguing and by closing argument they failed to put it together. it's entirely predictable this jury would take the jury instructions the law and try to apply the facts and if they don't fit they have to acquit and what jurors do in every case. >> were you surprised by what she was saying? >> no. this is exactly what i was saying frankly before the verdict this is how it was going to turn out when both sides are arguing reasonable doubt only one possible outcome and that was acquittal. she couldn't put it together. that is the prosecution' job. give them the theory of the case. that didn't happen. they failed to do that and so this was the predictable outcome and i'm so moved by her -- her tension, her conflict that she somehow knows this wasn't the right outcome but it's the one she had to com
, let me get to you react to what mark o'mara, the defense attorney for george zimmerman posted a little while ago, while juror b-29 is a model juror. "people may disagree with self-defense laws but a juror's job is not to decide what a law should be, her job is to apply the facts presented at trial to the laws they are instructed about. this is the eence of what we seek in a juror, the at to use one as common sense, apply the law to the facts, agree not to be swayed by sympathy or emotion, no matter how loudly it's argued by the prosecutors and decide a lawful and fair verdict." do you agree that juror b-29 was a, quote, model juror? >> well, i don't know if she was a model juror or not. i certainly think that she approached the process in good faith. i don't think there's any reason to doubt that she did that. but i think jeffrey makes a good point. what is really clear when we hear this juror speak is that she really misunderstood the law. she did not appropriately apply the law to the facts because she didn't understand it. and the reason why she didn't understand it could be because
me now, criminal defense attorney page pate and columnist for "chicago defender" welcome back. jason, let's start with the emotion of this case. what that juror just said that she carries this on her back and she will carry this in her forever. >> this is huge and interesting that she is the only juror that wants to come forward and be seen because there is a classic example. a difference between the law and justice. she reflects with a lot of people out there protesting over the last two and a half weeks we're talking about. everybody knows this guy did something wrong, but whether we can fit that into the law, that's the challenge. >> page, like juror b37 she seemed to be confused by the law. maddie said, "that's where i felt confused. if a person kills someone, you get charged for it. as the law was read to me, if you have no proof he killed him intentionally, you can't say he's guilty. did she get that right? >> she did get that right but she started out as a guilty, a guilty on the more serious murder charge. what happened back in the jury room is you had other jurors who had li

and today on "studio b," a former military prosecutor, who is now a defense attorney, told me the government has not convicted somebody of aiding the enemy since 1917. >> that was is essentially a case where somebody was disclosing information because they wanted americans to be killed. they wanted the enemy to have this information. and, in this case, i think the government just was not able to prove that pfc manning intentionally disclosed this to the enemy. >> shepard: manning supporters demonstrated outside othe courthouse today they see him as the whistle blower, a hero, not a criminal. so do lawyers who just called him naive with good intentions. manning admits he did give wikileaks more than 700,000 documents. prosecutors claim he knew al qaeda would see that information on that, prosecutors for the government lost completely. catherine herridge is on fox top story in the courthouse in fort mead in maryland. what happened in the courtroom today, catherine. >> late today the a.p. picked up comments from the defense indicating that they really felt today's verdict was a significant win

and will not face the death penalty. and in what may be the most dramatic proceedings, the defense began presenting witnesses in the priel of whitey bulger today. they're looking to convict on gambling, extortion, drug trafficking, and 19, yes, 19 murder charges. a question on everyone's mind is, will whitey testify? he has apparently told a friend he wants to set the record straight. joining us are the captains of our legal team, attorney seema ayer, and former prosecutor patrick murphy. thanks for being here. seema, i want to start with the whitey bulger case and that question. do you expect him to testify? overall, what's the defense's strategy? >> krystal, dear, i hope not. hasn't he said enough? any time we've seen that man in court, he's basically getting bleeped for cursing. so can you just imagine what he's going to say? >> it would be great tv. >> of course, of course. that's why we're here. however, at this point president defense has done enough to set up some sort of reasonable doubt in this case. if he testifies like within every other case, state or federal, in this country, when a de

doesn't really address anything about self-defense. during jury selection, she did not say she was puerto rican. it did not come up. i don't believe in the questionnaire that she said that because the prosecutor said black and/or hispanic. i was in jury selection every day of it and they were five puerto ricans, one after another, who said they were from port rico, they said in our culture, we do not believe in self-defense, thou shall not kill and if someone defends themselves, that's murder. >> mark, i know you don't get to be in the jury room as a lawyer but what do you think wept nt on those two days to the point where she wanted to convicted for second degree murder and to the point where she believed he was not guilty? >> these are very common dynami dynamics. this is the jury system at work. it happens really in almost every case. rare is it that you have a case where a jury comes back in five or ten or 30 minutes or even an hour. it usually requires everybody analyzing the evidence that came in, going back and forth, comparing their notes, comparing the testimony and th
problems that across the board cuts have caused in defense. i think the right solution would be to get together and have a set of alternatives to replace across the board cuts that were never meant to take place. >> will the -- >> the surprising thing is a couple years after everyone agreed this was bad policy, there are people who are now claiming credit for things that were designed to be bad policy and senseless across the board cuts. that's truly surprising. if you look at the way congress has been dealing with these across the board cuts, it reflects a substantial division even on the republican side. you see senators like john mccain and kelly ayotte. >> let's look to the debt limit. boehner said again this week no increase in the debt limit without an equal or greater amount in spending cuts. when are we going to hit the deadline? i know you're shifting money around. and short of republican surrender, are you going to make a deal to -- how do you avoid going into default? >> chris, to be clear, we hit the debt limit in may. we've been using what are called extraordinary measures
